Tulsi or Holy Basil is seen in most Hindu homes. It is an aromatic herb. The leaves of the plant are used for worship and have many medicinal and curative properties. The Tulsi plant is worrshipped by Hindus and is grown in front of the entrance of the house, in a specially built structure like the ones in the pic, which has images of deities on all four sides.
